Because Jesus died and rose again, He will also come again as He promised. He will come in the air with all the souls and spirits of those who, through the years, have died in Christ, those who have gone home to be with Christ - absent from the body and present with the Lord - in soul and spirit form. Jesus will come in the air with these redeemed souls. This is what Paul calls The Blessed Hope, Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour, Jesus Christ. (Titus 2:13).
